Apart from topping up your haemoglobin, beetroot can, quite literally, help you go the extra mile. According to a study done by researchers from the University of Exeter, Devon, South West England, nitrate present in beetroot provides muscle cells an energy boost, which in turn gives you the extra energy you need for your daily chores. During the study, participants were divided in two groups. While both drank beetroot juice, one group had no nitrates present in their juice. Turned out, those who drank the beetroot juice with the nitrates could run much faster. While nitrates may not suddenly turn you into Usain Bolt, the extra burst of energy could help seniors get through the day, sans fatigue.
